Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web
Barranco de Guayadeque is a cliff top filled with indigenous plants and natural caves originally settled by pioneers on the island. Visit the museum for a look at many of the artifacts they left behind. You can drive or catch a tour bus to see the caves themselves, many of which are still inhabited today, though they are now wired for electricity. Some of the residents may even invite you inside. A restaurant on the cliff offers traditional Canarian fare such as fried pork, traditionally prepared boiled potatoes, and local wine.

  • Breathtaking, it's got to be one of the most spectacular valleys in Europe.
  • Have found it as a top 10 hint for GC. Hoping the other nine are better. Probably the green valley is teasing some people.
  • Route by car from a highly recommended natural area, lots of green, a large image of the mountains, caves... It gives the impression of having moved to another place, above all coming from Agüimes-wit, with a change of total landscape. Insurance that is worth some route hiker, and the image from above must also be noteworthy.

  • From the bottom to the top there are many restaurants with very good prices and precious! The view during the ascent you trap completely. A radical with the stone coast and arid change for a more closed of craggy peaks environment full of native vegetation.

  • Total change of scenery. One has the impression to be in the middle of a canyon in the Mexico or Colorado. The view is magnificent.
